Saturday Step X Step - Grunge Paper Gears

Hi everyone and thank you for joining us. Buttons here with this week's Frilly and Funky Step by Step. I've mentioned before how good grunge paper is for making rusted gears and having recorded the recipe it seemed a good idea to share it with you.


Start by die cutting your grunge paper - with some machines this may take a few passes and sometimes they cut better at the edges of the plates as that is where the most pressure is exerted. 


Cover the grunge paper in black alcohol ink (you could use a pad or even a marker instead).


Now spray your cogs with some silver mica mist (Cosmic Shimmer, Perfect Pearls, etc.)


Finally dab on some Tarnished Brass Distress Stain and dry. Now they are ready to add to your projects.


And here's a close up to finish this week's instalment.
